The New Testament and Literature: A Guide to Literary Patterns

Couverture
Open Court Publishing, 2006 - 394 pages
The New Testament is perhaps the most influential book in the world from both an intellectual and literary standpoint. Still, few readers understand how to read the New Testament as a piece of literature. The New Testament and Literature acts as a guide, focusing on the underlying patterns that combine ideas with literary devices. The book identifies the literary formulas in the New Testament and shows how these elements have shaped English and American literature.
